Paso Robles teacher accused of sex with a second minor
December 20, 2014
A 31-year-old man out on bail for an arrest for allegedly having sexual relations with a Paso Robles High School student is now incarcerated in a Merced County Jail on charges he had sex with a second underage girl in 2013.
While teaching at Don Pedro High School in Merced County, Jeremy Monn allegedly has sexual relations with a 15-year-old student. The lawyer for the Merced teen’s family said officials at the Central Valley School district knew about the allegations, but passed Monn off to Paso Robles High School.
District officials deny the allegations, according to the Union Democrat.
On Friday, Merced Police officers arrested Monn at his Paso Robles home and booked him into the Merced County Jail with bail set at $250,000. On Thursday he pled not guilty to the Merced County charges.
On June 1, the Paso Robles Police Department received a tip that a 16-year-old girl was having an ongoing sexual relationship with Monn, her agriculture teacher. Police then interviewed the student who admitted to having a sexual relationship with Monn.
Following his arrest, Monn posted $50,000 bail and was released from the San Luis Obispo County Jail. Monn pled not guilty to eight counts that include unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor, meeting a minor for lewd purposes, dissuading a witness from reporting a crime and child molestation.
Monn is scheduled for a pre-trial hearing in San Luis Obispo County Superior Court that his attorney Ilan Funke-Bilu will likely attend without him. San Luis Obispo attorney David Vogel will be representing Monn at a bail hearing Monday morning in a Merced courtroom.
